Creative Cards September- Beautiful Greetings

I'm so excited to share this kit with you. I named it Beautiful Greetings because thats just what I thought when I looked at all the cards as a group... they are just beautiful! I hope you enjoy them to and that you love giving them to family and friends. Here are a few tips and tricks for putting your cards together.

I've added some notes for anything that doesn't stand out as obvious in the photos. I used a thin black marker to add pen details, you can do the same if you like that look. Cards have white envelopes and the small 3x3 cards have clear envelopes.

Card #1 - Fold cardstock to form card base. Attach patterned paper. Trim sentiment, attach. Add pen details and buttons. Fold envelope die cut along crease line and add adhesive to keep closed. Thread twine trough holes and tie in a bow. Trim sentiment, ink edges and attach a twine loop to back of sentiment with glue.
